    Depth of field, or DoF, is the range of distances within the frame that are in focus. Depth of field is determined by the f-stop value.

    Deep Depth of Field

    A smaller aperture (larger f-stop value) has a deeper depth of field. These f-stop values are good for landscape shots or other scenes in which you want things in the foreground and the background to be in focus.

    Shallow Depth of Field

    A larger aperture (smaller f-stop value) has a shallower depth of field. These f-stop values are good for macro shots or other scenes in which you want a specific area to be in focus with things in the foreground and/or background to be out of focus.
